Description Ismail Dönmez 2018-10-17 12:49:04 UTC
Hi,

icu v63.1 changelog has this interesting gem:

"To enable CLDR new Japanese era placeholder name, set environment variable (and Java system property for ICU4J) ICU_ENABLE_TENTATIVE_ERA=true."

Looks like when emperor changes in Japan so the calendaring system. https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/dotnet/2018/08/06/handling-a-new-era-in-the-japanese-calendar-in-net/ has more information for .NET code for example. Microsoft has more info over https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/shawnste/2018/04/12/the-japanese-calendars-y2k-moment/

We'll probably have to do some backports for this to work properly with old codestreams.
